CONTROLLING POWERS OF EUROPEANS’ BIBLE (4)

CONTROLLING POWERS OF EUROPEANS’ BIBLE (4)

The Catholic Church acquired great power by eliminating Ancient Africans’ all encompassing World Icon Image religion and replacing it with their own created white looking Messiah, Madonna and her child, and all deities of heaven. Now, the Church could control the “Savior’s” image and messages by speaking for him. A resultant “Halo” effect was all people had to worship whatever the Church said and worship even the Church itself. In their evolving Aryan oriented Bible, they kept ‘as is’ certain Ancient African Bible Messages and modified others, like claiming ownership of virgin birth and incarnation of the spirit in flesh. Thereafter, all sorts of fashioned Bibles conformed to Europeans ideas of religion and their ruling Supernatural God. For example, during Queen Elizabeth I’s reign, England had two main competing Holy Scripture versions. The 1560 anti-royal Geneva Bible, loved by Puritans and Calvanists, instituted the practice of numbering each verse. The other was the pro-royal but unpopular Bishop’s Bible. To gain the advantages of both, a first duty of King James VI of Scotland, upon succeeding Elizabeth I in 1604, was to call forth a Hampton Court Conference for “a new translation of the Bible, because those which were allowed in the reigns of Henry VIII, and Edward VI, were corrupt and not answerable to the truth of the Original.” James said: “I wish some special pains were taken for a uniform translation, which should be done by the best learned men in both Universities, then reviewed by the Bishops, presented to the Privy Council, lastly ratified by the Royal authority, to be read in the whole Church, and none other… These translations are to be used when they agree better with the Text than the Bishops Bibles: Tyndale’s, Matthew’s, Coverdale’s, Whitchurch’s, and Geneva.” This era’s atmosphere and its orientation concerned Europeans’ enslavement of Africans to carry them to South America and to prepare a Bible to control upcoming Enslaved Africans. By there being no politics and religion gap, these randomly chosen writers added another re-re-rewrite of the European Bible. This King James Bible, authored by six subcommittees, out of which one prevailed, was published in 1611, revised in 1885 for its intended purpose–as a political and mind-controlling tool. It, the church, and the ministers–thought of as refuges from realities of life–focused on generating domination, fear, awe, and reverence. This persists today.

The powerful controlling tool of spotlighting Fear of God’s wrath—was so effective because average Europeans are fearful of being seen to be doing something wrong. Thus, they tend to go through life without ever expressing their Real Selves or their true feelings (National Geographic p54, Dec. 2011). By the mid-1600s, the King James Bible had replaced all competing Bibles and was the Bible of the English speaking world, readied to indoctrinate Enslaved Africans brought from all over Africa to the Americas. It had no choice but to promote “Belief and Faith” in their White God and white Heaven. This came from their awareness of Africans “Knowing” their Real God existed–and when minds “Know,” they cannot be controlled!!! All Enslaved brilliantly organized Ultimate African Standard systems of thinking were shattered from exhaustion by beyond horrible Kill/Take/Destroy/Dominate/Oppress/Control deeds of enslavers. Brainwashing included Enslaved becoming children to Whites and love their White God more than they loved their own family or friends; that Whites were told the Word of God; that Whites were God’s messengers; Jesus had died to save them from Hell; and they were to completely and permanently forgive all Whites for all horrors used to convert them into being good enough to work in the kitchen of heaven so as to serve Whites. They were too ‘beaten down’ to resist.

Reinforcements came from intimidation, the whip, and “Not to follow these dictates is a Sin punishable by the Devil’s control and, at death, then go to Hell.” As a result, most Enslaved bonded with the oppressors, and protected them as a child desires to protect its mother. Scattered variously were the Enslaved ways of coping with their horrible lives. Some became “Ideal Slaves”; some Mulatto House Slaves defended and adopted their European side; some stuck together; some went off on their own to either die or follow Isolated Individualists’ path. The enslaves made each Enslaved fragment fight each other for “divide and conquer” purposes. It has been/remains vital to keep most Black People ignorant so as to remain Enslaved and thus always be at the mercy of Whites. jabaileymd.com

“KILLER” WHITE POLICE vs BLACK POLICE (38)

                     “KILLER” WHITE POLICE vs BLACK POLICE (38)

Since the beginning of American history of Black and White police “working together,” there has been no day devoid of White police treating Black police as “Faceless Monsters”—similar to any other Black person. White police’s Indifference, overflowing Hated, Evil deeds, and Sadism have ranged on a scale from casual disrespect to lethal violence. In the 1960s, compared with White drivers, for example, Chicago Black policemen were five times more likely to be pulled over and searched—the same as for any Black driver. The Afro-American Patrolmen’s League (AAPL) repeatedly called for an overhaul of the Chicago Police Department ways of racially operating, starting with the process of recruiting and hiring officers. One reason then and now is that the recruitment process acts as a sieve to keep the Black communities from participating equally and fairly in the process of sitting for the examination. One Black officer said: “You can complain about not having representation and you can complain about not having Black officers, but the fact of the matter is that if you’re not going to take the police test and get involved, we’re always going to be in that situation. We have to start taking ownership, but at the same time the city has a responsibility to provide the necessary tools needed to get people engaged.” Ongoing “doctored” changes in applicant requirements and the usages of polygraph tests have always been effective in keeping low the number of Black Americans from being qualified to move forward in the hiring process. The early 1980s is when Black Northern neighborhoods started being simultaneously over-policed and under-policed in a manner allowing the criminal justice system to punish Black criminal suspects more harshly when their victims were or are White, as opposed to when victims are Black. Black police and their families have always stood in the middle–often either branded Uncle Toms by their families, friends and neighbors or traitors to their profession if approaching any discord between police and Black Americans with objectivity.

On the mild end of the Inhumanity Scale fashioned by White Killer police can be found such racists acts of Black policemen finding graffiti painted on their lockers. Or, there are alienating comments among White coworkers via conversations and by emails about the Black officers’ skin color, hair, or taste in food or music. At the mid-range of the scale, it is routine for a barrage of verbal attacks by several White police to be showered on fellow Black officers as well as Black people, particularly Black males for the purpose of lowering or destroying their sense of Worth—a form of projection to hide their own envy and self-hatred. Unfortunately, because of the Selfhood dismantling or weakening effects of slavery continuing to be part of “Slave Survivals” in many Black People, these attacks do cause some Black People’s Integrity–held together by the “glue” of doubt–to unravel. On the other end of the scale, Black officers’ lives were/are automatically at high risk if they were/are spotlighted as being “whistle-blowers”. A typical practice was/is for them to never get “back-up” support when in troubled situations. Whether wearing a uniform or being off-duty, Black officers have always faced extra challenges of racial inequity—not credited for heroism or, routinely since slavery, White policemen assigning Black policemen handle suspicious looking packages, possibly containing dangerous germs or whatever else was particularly dangerous.

Typically, whether speaking against what spans the more indirect technique of victimization of Black police, all the way over to blatant acts of cruelty, the voices of Black officers have been blunted. Some reasons come from countless intimidation factors, including threats of being killed outright by White policemen for not doing what they are told. Otherwise, to not “go along to get along” with those threats might mean the Black policeman would likely be shot by a White policemen when an excuse arises during community shoot-outs with gangs. A tiny few Black policemen chose to do illegal things against fellow Black policemen so as to be accepted by White policemen.  Because of their Code of Silence and cover-ups, White “Killer” policemen are almost assured of not being charged or even reported for their rampant abuses and most heinous of criminal acts. In fact, for such Abuse and cover-ups, “Killer” policeman gain benefits, including being honored by fellow White policemen. Often, any incriminating court records against Killer police are destroyed. jabaileymd.com

ENSLAVED AFRICANS IN THE NEW WORLD

  ENSLAVED AFRICANS IN THE NEW WORLD

Although in the early years, poor indentured servant Whites (convicts, prostitutes, religious dissidents, the wayward), from Europe were a major labor source for tobacco, rice and indigo farms, this dwindled away by the end of C17—partly because they were always troublesome workers. They quarreled with masters over the contract conditions and many filed lawsuits. Hence, although the Black population in Virginia was only about 500 up to 1660, thereafter social pressures driving the lower classes out of England diminished, and the average residual life span of these newly arrived lengthened, thanks to the improvement of living and medical standards. Changes in labor market conditions made the purchase of Enslaved Africans more profitable. How slavers were to treat the Enslaved had a defining moment by 1660 when colonial Europeans revived Enslaved practices of their ancient Greek ancestors. The essence concept was that anyone who allowed themselves to be Enslaved were mentally weak, subhuman, and like mechanical beings. As a result, their purpose as Slaves is to do the ugly, horrible, uninteresting work of civilization’s daily life, since otherwise Greek contemplation and culture would be almost impossible. Europeans focus on being able to glorify leisure meant generating situations of Enslaved labor to make them rich. The high price included: (1) an incompatibility of achieving an even average level intellect and their Indifference/Hate/Evil/Sadism mindset; (2) tolerating always being fearful; and, (3) for the tiny few Europeans having a trace shadow of a “Religious” Conscience meant handling those burdens of what would likely happen regarding whatever “morals” they thought they had + Anxieties (an inability to decide which way to go or which way things will go) + being chained by Worries (much mental activity centered on variables beyond ones control) + being inadequate as humans + resultant self-hate.

In order to gain a tow-rope to grasp, in hopes of lessening their inner instability, they were intent on destroying the minds and Selfhood of the Enslaved they were rearing so as to be “Zombies” (a Haitian Creole term for those in a “walking coma” state). In rummaging through classical Greek and Roman literature to get ideas for building the “Big House” on plantations, the slave owners came upon useful information. One was the certainty of the Enslaved being property objects. For more than 3000 years, the legal characteristics of bondage, which regard an Enslaved as chattel property, have changed very little. It is common in the field of history, however, that actual human relations or economic status substantially varied within the same legal form. Also, routinely proprietary claims and powers were made to apply on those clearly not Enslaved. Hence, this served as justification for enslaving Free Blacks. Furthermore, they learned that those Medieval West-European jurists who had rediscovered the Roman law, regarded serfs as property of landlords and were similarly subjected to purchase and sale like the Enslaved. Yet, these Serfs were immovable. Still another point was that although at the extreme case of C18 Russia, serfs were legally chattel. That these concepts persisted throughout slavery was seen up to 1975 in USA professional athletes–being objects of property that could be bought and sold, even against their will. What separated them from being Enslaved was only for the difference in the relative power of the partners concerned and the origins of the relationships between them and the team owners.

Before the time of Black slavery, Servants were Virginia’s most valued form of property. It was noted in 1648 that servants were “more advantageous… than any other commodities” for importation from England. Meanwhile, to cement the Enslavement of Africans, in 1662, the rule of the ius gentium (‘what natural reason has established’) was adopted—dictating any child born in the colony took the status of the mother. In addition, since laws around this time voided Baptism as a reason for manumission, in 1667, an act was passed declaring baptism does not change the status of an Enslaved—a reflection of the uneasiness in their also being Christians. The more Americanized African descendants became, the more the convenient self-interest biblical Pauline doctrine (contrary to Jesus’ teachings) of obedience to slavers as a Christian duty was imported to the plantation and the colonies by means of other non-King James European Bibles. jabaileymd.com

EUROPEAN ENSLAVERS AS ‘”KILLER” POLICE (17)

 

:

EUROPEAN ENSLAVORS AS “KILLER” POLICE (17)

European nations’ competition with each other and their insatiable greed that had already resulted in global devastation and inhumanity unequaled in human history, found in Africa a ‘gold mine’ of riches and people to serve as Enslaved. Within this process of emphasizing exploitation of Africans and Africa, countless millions were similarly killed. The point of Europeans invasion of the Americas was to bring in Enslaved Africans to do the work of shaping the Americas into the European Empire cultural image. As was typical of the “friendly” presentation of introduction to kind-hearted Africans and Amerindians—both possessing what Europeans were going to rob– Europeans killed almost all the Amerindians and most all of their essential food supply. Increasing needs for labor called for more drastic measures. Thus, by 1640, signs of enslavement began to appear for Colored Peoples. Whereas punishments for runaway White indentured servants were just one additional year of servitude, Blacks were sentenced to lifetime bondage, whatever the nature of their contract. One reason slavery formed in “the New World of freedom and opportunity” was because labor was always scarce relative to the vast, unoccupied, fertile land. Meanwhile, once slavery was under way in the Americas–because Christians were not allowed to enslave other Christians and as the Enslaved became a better long term investment in Virginia—there arose the issue of whether or not Christians could enslave those who had converted. Virginia law decisions in the 1660s included: (1) that European and Church law allowed the enslavement of non-Christians, i.e. “heathens”; (2) that converted Enslaved Africans could henceforth be held in bondage; and (3) that conversion to Christianity did not require manumission. Later, a loophole was closed in 1682 when “Heathen Descent” rather than actual heathenism was the legal basis for slavery in Virginia.

The concept of “Heathen Ancestry” was a giant step toward making racial differences in the foundation of servitude. The legal developments and semantic tendencies that, in effect, made the disabilities of Heathenism inheritable and inextricably associated with “Blackness,” laid the framework for ‘Societal Racism’. By Europeans manipulating their idea of Supernatural religious morals to suit their convenience meant Black People could escape Heathenism by demonstrating they had converted to Christianity and yet were trapped by not being able to escape the European self-interest label of “Heathen Descent.” So, the reality path for legal and Christian racial slavery was paved. In the interest of supporting the agricultural economy of the South, Slave Codes were enacted in Virginia and Maryland. Colonial leaders decided to base the American economic system on human slavery organized around the distribution of melanin in human skin. The first official Enslavement act was dated 1661–thereby establishing its form as a social institution in Virginia–the extending of Blacks’ status of chattel indentured Slaves to ‘Slaves for life.’ The imposed status, ‘Slave for life,’ remained in effect for colonial Africans and their descendants until 1863 when the Emancipation Proclamation was signed into law. However, by 1863, the “race” die had been cast.

Blackness became the criteria of a legal caste-like status. Thus, the original decision to create what amounted to a racially derived status probably arose less from a consciousness of racial privilege than from slave owners’ palpable self-interest. This is because they acquired the Enslaved to supplement or replace their fluctuating force of indentured servants. It was usually assumed that everyone in the colonies with brown skin color had descended from Africa or was otherwise a “Heathen.” Thus, European enslavers discourse shifted focus from ones religious spirit to ones physical makeup. To sever the link between Christianity/Heathenism and Freedom/Slavery meant spotlighting physical appearances as the lone criteria that marked Africans as the Enslaved class throughout the colonies. Thus, the criterion of “Heathen Ancestry” was significant ideologically and legally in creating a physical-appearance/racial-category system of enslavement. This shift to racial slavery helped to cultivate the belief that the normal status of dark-skinned people was servitude and thereafter slavers instituted an all-out effort to cause all Black children to believe their purpose in life is to serve White people.

ENSLAVED VOLITION NOT TO THINK

ENSLAVED VOLITION NOT TO THINK

The “Fishnet” episode was followed by the exhausting long marches to slave holding areas. Enslaved Africans brought in from around African empires included those of the Western Sudan Moslems, Central and West Africa, Madagascar, and elsewhere. These men, woman, and children from all over Africa ranged from the dignified, cultured, and refined in possession of noble character–to being quite intelligent and educated–to “normal”–to the problematic (e.g. bad characters, the disabled, the feeble). The very earliest interactions of the newly captured Africans in Africa was that of being shackled together in the coffles. Newly captured and Enslaved Africans of different cultures and from diverse regions of Africa were separated so as to ensure no mates spoke the same language. They marched hundreds of miles together to coastal African areas while chained, barefoot, having inadequate clothing–and almost no rest, food, or water.  From there they were transported to the African coastal shores of the Gulf of Guinea and others where stood many trading posts or “factories” on the Grain Coast (Liberia), the Ivory Coast (now the Ivory Coast Republic), the Gold Coast (Ghana), and the Slave Coast (Nigeria, Dahomey/Benin, and Togo). Upon arrival and placement in barracoons (holding prisons), the newly Enslaved, whenever sporadically fed, had to fight each other over scraps of food thrown into their human waste in which they stood. And they were in standing room only barracoons with feces a foot deep. The results of all to which the Enslaved were subjected led to the “Survival Mindset” of Despair (hopeless hopelessness)—i.e. a Despair leading easily to submission to the captors. In some, portions of “Survival Despair” allowed “Awe” and Fascination to be so out of control as to generate a mindset state called Mental Evasion (the willful suspension of ones consciousness) which admixes with “Awe”.

This combination has the effect of causing the afflicted to: (1) be blind to things of significance in the present and for the future; (2) not allow one to attach much importance to beneficial information and therefore that information is easily forgotten, despite it being very important; (3) embrace Superficial Thinking; and (4) internalize the constant destructive attacks on their self-esteem they experience so that those attacks come alive by means of an emotionally loaded Icon Image. Those Icon Images are Engrams—i.e. a memory imprint leaving simply an Image, or an Imagination form or a Contingent Being (e.g. ‘bogeyman’) figure with ‘character’ and power. None of these are what is seen in reality but rather what ones Imagination creates as distortions of reality or fantasy of a Supernatural nature that makes ones mind believe it to be real. One or more of these engrams are reinforced by the afflicted repeatedly playing back its payload messages on their mental tape recorder until they create a fixed self-defeating mindset which repeatedly fashions Delusions leading to vicious cycles.

A mindset undergoing such a disintegration of reality—partly conscious and partly unconscious—while replacing it with Supernatural Engrams–thereafter becomes the gatekeeper to serve as the standard, filter, guide, and measure for how information coming into that mind is interpreted and processed for mental functioning. Furthermore, it acts like a plow for making further inroads into the Delusional World. All residents of the Delusional World (e.g. Brutes, Satanists) generate chaotic, immature, rationally illogical, and Supernatural irrational thought forms that are ingredients for their anti-Spiritual Elements decision-making and problem solving. Such Extreme Mental Evasion’s disintegrated mental function effects means the inability to have proper concepts about Life and Love (see Bailey, Unlocking Minds Of Black Boys for elaboration). On bad consequences, an Emotionalism lifestyle is built, as those of Indifference/Hate/Evil/Sadism of Brutes and Satanism. Another path derives from doing whatever it takes to simply endure in order to survive–as it was for Enslaved Africans who, in turn, culturally transmitted this pattern into many of their today’s descendants—a mindset that negates the ability of the afflicted to figure out how to rise above their various poverties. That pattern can be seen today. So to blame victims for not doing things that are “obviously” right or by considering them to make decisions by ones own standards, and do “Common Sense” things is to display ones self-centered arrogant ignorance. jabaileymd.com

“ESCAPE” QUILT SYMBOLS OF ENSLAVED AFRICANS

“ESCAPE” QUILT SYMBOLS OF ENSLAVED AFRICANS
            Though much controversy surrounds the Practical Knowledge used for Symbolic Message Quilts designed by Enslaved African, my research and having talked with ex-Slaves concludes they existed and served as vehicles to carry a variety of messages–some as “Escape Quilts”; others conveying military messages (Bailey, Word Stories Surrounding African American Slavery). Forms of messages included: the presence or absence of the quilt itself; if present, its location; its position; whether or not there were other pieces of laundry hung out to air; and the time it was hung out. Coded quilt border patterns ranged from obvious to subtle as well as from pertinent to the escapees and/or deceptive to the pursuers. “Escape Quilt” messages were (a) on plantations for those preparing to escape had the proper time–the selected route–what was required; (b) along the escape route; (c) at the freedom destination. Preparation “escape” quilts had such codes as: (1) a Monkey Wrench to serve as a clue to gather tools, for they would be needed on the escape path; (2) a Wagon Wheel indicating the preferred way to escape; and (3) a Sailboat indicating a body of water or the availability of boats nearby and therefore indicating the need to find out more information about it.
            Paraphrased excerpts from Deborah Hopkinson’s book: “Sweet Clara and the Freedom Quilt” (thanks to Judy Bello) concerns gathering Practical Symbol Knowledge. It started with “Sweet Clara’s” dream of escaping her life of Enslavement. By being an apt student from Aunt Rachel teaching her to sew scraps of cloth from the “Big House,” she was changed from a field hand to a seamstress in the “Big House.” Of all kinds of new places and things she heard about, one was an Enslaved being captured at a swamp on the far side of the plantation not far from the Ohio River. A month later, somebody else said there were “Underground Railroad” abolishionists helping escaped Slaves to get across the Ohio River. In discussing this, one House Slave said: “if it was that easy to take you all the way to Canada and freedom forever, more would be gone.” Another chimed in: “It be easy if you could get a map.” Sweet Clara had a “That’s It! Insight and asked “Where’s Canada?” Aunt Rachel pointed to the North Star, saying Canada is far north and under that star. The next question: “What’s a map?” Answer: “just a picture of the land and whatever’s on the ground.” Though the “Big House” family knew about map pieces, they dismissed it. But Sweet Clara went up on a hill and drew a picture of all the cabins and fields. Somehow she needed to make a permanent picture of this and the idea for that came when she was sewing a patch that looked like the cow pond near the cabins. So she put the map on a quilt. Refinements were made from talking with a ‘run-away’ who had been caught and beatened. Sweet Clara worked for months on the quilt, often waiting to get the right kind of cloth. A driver of the slave owner would make a casual statement like: “it rained and they stopped at the next cabin 20 miles north of here.” Similar casual statements–the old tree struck down by lightening; the winding road near the creek; the hunting path through the swamp–all helped in putting her blanket markings in proper distance perspective. Sweet Clara and others chose to escape when a thunderstorm made it impossible for field workers to do their tasks. Yet, the escape had its own set of unexpected problems needing “on-the-spot” solutions.
            This vignette gives a sample of the practical intelligence of the Enslaved, despite their illiteracy. Principles, symbols, and messages contained in African and African American Quilt Cloths evolved out of the allegory practices of African Tradition. The Abstract or Abstraction process involves the conceptualizing of something in the Metaphysical and/or Physical by giving it a symbol designed so each color has its own signficance pertaining to some particular thing. Together, they convey a specific message. The approach used by Sweet Clara is a model for how the struggling can rise out of any type of poverty; how to find their birth gift musical theme arising from their Souls; and how to thrive. The pattern of Sweet Clara is exactly how I gather information for subjects about which almost nothing is written. But it always requires a tremendous amount of background preparation, including drawing on the best of what has worked in the past and re-purposing its application. This is the way to become a “Super-Specialist” in anything. jabaileymd.com
                                   

TITAN METHOD FOR GRIEVING HEARTS

The death of my beloved dog, Titan, has stimulated my thoughts for the four Memory Phases of the core of the Grieving Process: Phase I consist of Titan being normal and healthy; Phase II concerns when he became disabled; Phase III is the last hour of his life; and Phase IV, the after death grief. The Immaterial core of the Grieving Process begins with Phase II and in the form of anxiety over realizing Titan is on an obvious countdown to death. As signs clearly make evident the nearing of his death there comes fretting over hoping he will die quietly in his sleep. Otherwise, what will cause me to make the decision to “put him down” and will I have the courage to do so? I must think of what is best for him and not what I want for me. Phase III is about switching from the present moment to imagining his dying and what life will be like after he is gone. After he dies I step inside Phase IV’s core of Grief. So what do I do now? When starting to grieve in full force I call into action my previously mentioned preparations + reserves + time limit rule + boundaries in order to assist keeping me somewhat inside the confines of the turmoil brought in with the Grieving Process. Meanwhile, I follow my previously prepared inner core stepping stone pattern for it serves as a tow-rope throughout the Grieving Process.
